Center for Children welcomes Margaret Caughy, Sc.D., "Succeeding despite the obstacles: Closing the education gap for children in poverty".

Early academic achievement is a potent predictor of later success, and children living in poverty are at increased risk for early academic failure.  In this presentation, we will explore not only the factors that put poor children at risk for poor academic achievement but also characteristics of poor children, their families, and their communities that can support resilience.
